Yazidi refugee flees Germany to escape ISIS man who bought her for $100…who has also claimed refugee status in Germany

This story really gives you a warm fuzzy feeling about the vetting process for these so-called refugees.  A Yazidi refugee now living in Germany was confronted there by a man who was in ISIS and bought her for $100.  She fled to Germany to escape that nightmare.  Now, she is fleeing to IRAQ to escape this man again in Germany.  What’s even more tragic is this man cannot be prosecuted properly as he too has refugee status.

What struck me first was the fact she actually put the time in to learn German.  Imagine that.

There is no doubt a small portion of refugees pouring into Germany are truly in need. Far far far less than the number they are actually allowing in.  And we’ve been told they are vetted thoroughly before being let in.  How?  Many do not have proper paperwork.  And the countries they are fleeing from hardly ever have helpful paperwork to thoroughly vet an incoming refugee.  With that in mind it’s not shocking at all that even ISIS members are easily infiltrating refugee ranks and claiming status throughout Europe.

And it’s not a problem isolated to Europe.  Just this week in the United States an ISIS man was arrested in Sacramento.  Via Fox News:

Ameen allegedly arrived in Rawah, Iraq “with a caravan of ISIS vehicles” — after the organization gained control of the town on June 21, 2014 — and made their way to the Rawah police officer’s home, officials said. The following day, multiple group members, including Ameen, allegedly shot the officer.

“Ameen then allegedly fired his weapon at the victim while the victim was on the ground, killing him,” officials said.

The suspect is accused of being a member of ISIS and al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), as well as carrying out tasks for the groups, “including helping to plant improvised explosive devices,” according to the news release.

Following the alleged incident, Ameen relocated to Sacramento from Iraq “as a purported refugee” and did not mention his alleged ties to the terrorist organizations when seeking refugee status and a green card in the U.S., officials said.

This is further proof it is simply too hard or we are not properly equipped to vet anyone from coming into our country.  Apparently this must be said explicitly: the health and safety of our own citizens should come before the health and safety of refugees who have zero allegiance to our country.  It seems it wasn’t too hard for this man to pretend to be a refugee and seek refugee status here.  The entire immigration system should be shut down until we can prove that we can responsibly start it up again.  Or does Ameen need to set off  a few IEDs first before we wake up?

A Good Start: President Trump looks to ban welfare for immigrants

This is a good and logical first step in reforming our broken welfare system.  Via Breitbart:

President Trump’s ban on allowing welfare-dependent legal immigrants to resettle permanently in the United States would likely save American taxpayers about $1,600 a year per immigrant.

As Breitbart News reported, the Trump administration is set to roll out a plan in the next month that bars foreign nationals who need government welfare in order to live from resettling in the U.S. Such a ban on welfare importation through immigration has been eyed by the Trump White House since February.

Such a plan would be a boon for American taxpayers, who currently spend about $57.4 billion a year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low skilled legal immigrants every year. In the last decade, the U.S. has imported more than 10 million foreign nationals and is on track to import the same amount in the coming decade if legal immigration controls are not implemented.

The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households.

It’s nice to see the numbers so clearly laid out.  $57.4 Billion dollars a year on immigrants, who we’ve been told are a great strength to us as a nation.  If it isn’t clear by now the key strength of immigrants to our nation is cheap labor for corporations.  Period.  Usually when I think of strengths I don’t think of people leeching off a government they never put anything into.  Nowadays you’re called a monster or a racist for even saying that.  That’s the state we are in.  That number will only increase if we continue to add the equivalent population of New York City just in foreigners every decade to our country.  The math does not add up and it will not end well.  And that of course doesn’t include those immigrants having children in that time, which they often do at a higher birthrate.

The country needs to grow up and have an adult conversation about immigration in the United States.  It would amount to suicide if we continue our current immigration policies and our current welfare program.  It will not do us OR THE IMMIGRANTS any good if we drown trying to help every single soul on the planet that is in some kind of need.  Yes, many situations are sad.  But we need to stop acting like children about this.  The right has kowtowed to the left and their feelings-based decision making for too long.  The United States can do far more positive in the world if we ourselves as a nation are in good financial shape.  I’ve posted the below video before but it really is the perfect illustration to show how fruitless letting in unchecked numbers of immigrants is.

Where’s the benefit? Welfare usage by immigrants vs native households

A couple years ago the Center for Immigration Studies published this landmark study on welfare usage by immigrant households (both legal and illegal) as compared to native households.  Here are a few of the key findings from the study:

  • The average household headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) costs taxpayers $6,234 in federal welfare benefits, which is 41 percent higher than the $4,431 received by the average native household.
  • The average immigrant household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household. Housing costs are about the same for both groups.
  • At $8,251, households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico have the highest welfare costs of any sending region — 86 percent higher than the costs of native households.
  • Illegal immigrant households cost an average of $5,692 (driven largely by the presence of U.S.-born children), while legal immigrant households cost $6,378.
  • The greater consumption of welfare dollars by immigrants can be explained in large part by their lower level of education and larger number of children compared to natives. Over 24 percent of immigrant households are headed by a high school dropout, compared to just 8 percent of native households. In addition, 13 percent of immigrant households have three or more children, vs. just 6 percent of native households.

Beyond this, more than half (51%) of ALL IMMIGRANT-HEADED HOUSEHOLDS use at least one federal welfare program, compared to 30% for native households.  See below for additional figures from the study.  The results are conclusive and altogether not surprising for many who read here, but this information must be passed around for everyone to see.

Remember, we’re being sold this as if we will perish without immigration.  The reality is we’ll perish if we continue immigration at its current levels.  Immigrants cost more money than they produce, plain and simple.  The average immigrant household is a net negative to the American taxpayer.  The stats above already show that we have a big enough welfare problem with native households as it is.  Further, these are not your great-great-grandparents’ immigrants.  We’re constantly told this is a nation of immigrants, which is patently false, and that we’ve always been welcoming.  The reality is the immigrants who came to Ellis Island did not have welfare benefits to welcome them when they got off the ships.  The only reward once getting off the boat was the OPPORTUNITY to work.  That was the American Dream.  Today, the American Dream is to be on the public dole once they get here.

There’s something of a trend in the graph above that is also worrying, though not altogether surprising.  Since 1965 the type of immigrant that has come here has changed drastically.  During the initial wave of immigrants in the 19th century the vast majority of them were of European descent.  The vast majority of immigrants today (both legal and illegal) hail from Central and South America.  And as the graph above shows the immigrants from Central and South America cost the average taxpayer much more than other demographic groups.  Again, how is this a benefit to America and its citizens?  These are tough discussions, and make some people uncomfortable.  But a little discomfort is far preferable than to say nothing and watch the destruction occur without doing anything for fear of offending someone.

Here are some of the conclusions of the study:

This study implies that two competing narratives about immigration are both true. Immigrants do indeed have a strong attachment to the labor force, as immigration advocates often point out. At the same time, however, immigrants consume a large amount of welfare spending, just as critics claim. The reason that both narratives are true is that the American welfare system has become increasingly focused on buttressing low-wage workers rather than supporting non-workers. Put more simply, welfare and low-wage work go together. Just as natives with low levels of education and large numbers of children are apt to consume welfare, immigrants with those same characteristics are also likely to be on welfare. A strong work ethic does not change this reality.

In order to reduce the cost of immigrant welfare use, either the welfare system or the immigration system must change. The former option is sometimes described as “building a wall around the welfare state” to prevent new immigrants from accessing it. It is easier said than done. Loopholes and exceptions have weakened previous attempts to limit immigrant access to welfare.18 More importantly, Congress has no power to prevent the U.S.-born children of immigrants from using the same welfare programs that the children of natives do. No matter how strong the “wall around the welfare state” is built, it cannot stop immigrant parents from signing up their U.S.-born children for Medicaid, SNAP, free school lunch, etc., as long as native parents can do the same.

Only a full-scale rollback of the welfare state for both immigrants and natives would prevent immigrant families from consuming welfare dollars. Whatever one thinks of that proposal, it is not a policy change likely to occur in the near future.19 In fact, importing new clients of the welfare state likely makes it even harder to roll back.20 As long as the U.S. continues to admit large numbers of low-skill immigrants (legal or illegal), then immigrant welfare consumption will remain high.

I’ve said before it is simply not feasible to continue immigration as we are currently doing it and be a welfare state.  That is suicide.  There is no other word for it.  We need to drastically cut down on legal immigration, and make it easier to deport illegal aliens.  Anchor babies can become citizens automatically.  This needs to stop.  Chain migration will break the back of the country.

Unfortunately, the national deficit is an abstract enough concept that nobody ever really takes it seriously.  Because we do not feel the effects of it on our everyday lives (noticeably anyway) it doesn’t feel like it’s a serious problem to most people.  It should.  And the word needs to be spread.  If the national deficit is too abstract a concept, remind people that a constant stream of legal immigrants and illegal aliens means more housing.  When’s the last time you thought you were getting a great deal on rent?  Or that housing prices were too low?  Or how about traffic?  It sounds silly, but they need to drive too.  When’s the last time you thought California could handle more cars on the road?  Or use the liberal’s arguments against them.  You want higher wages for workers?  Well, less low-skilled labor in the workplace will reduce the supply and invariably raise the wages for the workers that are left.  We need to start shifting the argument.  We have the high ground, we just need to use it better.

Extremist Muslim arrested in New Mexico training kids for school shootings

Via Fox News:

The father of a missing 3-year-old who was arrested at a New Mexico compound linked to “extremist Muslims” last week was training children to commit school shootings, court documents filed on Wednesday revealed.

Prosecutors allege Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, was conducting weapons training on the compound, where 11 children were found hungry and living in squalor. They asked Wahhaj, who appeared in court on Wednesday, be held without bail.

Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam, also named Siraj Wahhaj, who was named by prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the New York Post reported.

New Mexico.  Not Afghanistan.  Not Iraq.  Though you wouldn’t be able to tell from the suspects or the compound.

Suspects

The father of the boy reportedly wanted to give him an exorcism because they thought he was possessed.  In reality he suffered from seizures and his remains were found at the compound.

This is the fruit that “diversity” often bears.  Is this really what we want?  To be clear: these people did not magically change their ways when they moved to America.  They brought their culture and customs with them.  This isn’t surprising to anyone with half a brain, but it apparently will come as a shock to those who are willfully ignorant and mindlessly virtue signal that it’s okay for anyone and everyone to come to the United States.  As much as many here wish it weren’t so, many immigrants that come here do not want to assimilate to our culture and will not assimilate.  And many of these customs and cultures being brought here are simply incompatible with the Western world and American way of life.  Our freedoms simply do not mesh with their belief system.  These kids were being groomed for future school shootings.  Let that sink in.

Spread these stories around.  The more average, everyday Americans hear about this stuff the more they’ll become vocal about wanting to preserve our way of life.  The more the general population is vocal the easier it will be for President Trump to reform our broken immigration system.  Illegal immigration needs to be stopped immediately.  And our legal immigration system needs a complete revamping as well.  We are importing 1.5 million new LEGAL immigrants a year as it is.  That too needs to stop.  Freeze immigration for 5 years, or put it to a trickle for the next decade.  Many who are sympathetic to immigrants and want to appear compassionate are completely ignoring how drastic the demographic change will be and already has become.  Just remember, virtue signaling will only make your children’s future that much worse.  Think of the world we leave them.  If we don’t do something soon we will be leaving them far worse off than the trajectory already leads at our current pace.

A Broken System: Mexican Illegal Alien charged with sexual assault on 8 yr old girl, state stuck footing nearly $1 million medical bill

More news that should get your blood boiling.  Via The Salt Lake Tribune:

Gerardo Valerio-Romero was in Utah County custody, accused of repeatedly sexually abusing an 8-year-old relative, when he was diagnosed with cancer.

 

The day after the medical determination, the 49-year-old Mexican citizen was in LDS Hospital receiving cancer treatment, marking the start of an ongoing saga that exposed a rift between the county’s sheriff and its commission as well as medical bills that threaten to top $1 million.

 

Even at a discount, Valerio-Romero’s cancer treatments have drained the county jail’s medical budget. His case is set for trial early next month, and he’s caught the interest of federal immigration officials who will look at possibly deporting him if he’s acquitted. Until then, he’s in Utah’s court system, where his case is stalled and costs from his treatment continue to climb.

It should be noted he also faces eight felony charges related to forgery and one count of unlawful possession of another person’s ID.  So to recap: man sexually abuses 8 yr old girl, man gets arrested, man should be deported, but because of our insane laws on deportation and because he is in our custody we have to foot his insane medical bill.

 

Not only is this draining the police department’s budget but has driven the Sheriff to resign.  Everything about this case is a disaster and a microcosm of the bigger picture.  This guy shouldn’t even be here and he’s receiving better medical treatment than many Americans themselves can afford.  That alone is inexcusable.  Couple it with the fact that he may have sexually abused a child puts this into an entirely different realm.  And this, as I’ve stated many times before, is what will lead to Civil War.  Preferential treatment and shoddy laws that protect illegal aliens more than American citizens will not fly forever.  This will turn violent, sadly.

This is yet another reason President Trump’s comments have been vindicated regarding immediate deportation for illegals without going through an insane court process.  Given, Gerardo here wasn’t stopped at the border, he was already in the country.  But going through the process which really was intended for this nation’s citizens is insanely costly and causing real unrest in the local community for someone who doesn’t belong here in the first place.

Apparently NH is too white

The NY Times put out this article a few days ago about changing the demographic landscape of 94% white New Hampshire.  The article, “New Hampshire, 94 Percent White, Asks: How do you diversify a whole State?” is titled in such a way as if NH and all its residents are just clamoring to change the demographic landscape of the state as a whole.  Something tells me this simply isn’t the case.  A few excerpts from the article, with some added commentary:

Catalina Celentano used to hold training sessions for hospital workers in Lynn, Mass., to familiarize them with the cultures of patients from Cambodia, Russia and the Dominican Republic. When she moved to New Hampshire, she suddenly found herself in an ethnic vacuum.

“I went from being able to speak Spanish every day to not speaking Spanish at all because there wasn’t anybody to speak Spanish to,” said Mrs. Celentano, who was born in Colombia to a Colombian mother and Hungarian father. “The only person I spoke Spanish with was a cleaning lady and she moved back to Colombia.”

I’m sorry you can’t speak Spanish every day, Catalina.  If that’s important to you perhaps you can move back Colombia?

New Hampshire, like its neighbors Vermont and Maine, is nearly all white. This has posed an array of problems for new arrivals, who often find themselves isolated and alone, without the comfort and support of a built-in community.

Why is it, without fail, that we the host must kowtow and bend over backwards to make everyone else comfortable when moving HERE.  I don’t expect to be catered to, given free handouts, demand they speak English, or complain I feel uncomfortable because I’m a minority if I went to China or Japan or Mexico.  Absurd.

With nonwhites poised to make up a majority of the American population in the next three decades, he said, diversity has become a bottom-line imperative for companies competing for talent, especially for workers who can speak other languages. As it stands, New Hampshire is 3 percent Latino, 2 percent African-American and 3 percent Asian, according to the census, with some people identifying as more than one race. The nation as a whole is 17 percent Latino, 14 percent African-American and 6 percent Asian.

“New Hampshire’s future economy is dependent on our ability to set ourselves up as a welcoming state,” Mr. Arvelo said at the meeting. “We do a great job marketing ourselves around travel and tourism. How do we use those tools to attract talent?”

The project grew out of informal talks over the last few years among a racially diverse coalition of people, including Mrs. Celentano, who say they want to change New Hampshire’s demographics. The effort is so new that it has no name. But it is drawing important players.

And there it is.  So these talks are being put together by people who likely aren’t from New Hampshire and if they are they are the minority.  And it’s being posed as if New Hampshire cannot survive as a state if they don’t do something drastic about it.  This isn’t the 94% clamoring to make New Hampshire more diverse.  Remember that.  They’re not even hiding what they’re doing.  They explicitly say they want to change the demographic makeup of New Hampshire.  That’s population change.  A hostile takeover.  Grounds for war.  Do you really think the residents of New Hampshire want to all of a sudden become a minority?  New Hampshire is a microcosm of the country as a whole.

New Hampshire’s neighbors, Vermont and Maine, are 95 percent white, making northern New England collectively the whitest region in a nation where white residents make up just over 60 percent of the population, according to the census.

Northern New England does contain pockets that are less monolithic. They are concentrated in the largest communities — Portland, Me.; Burlington, Vt.; and in Manchester, N.H. In Manchester, for example, the white population has dropped to 82 percent, down from 98 percent in 1980. Since then, other ethnicities have been increasing, and as of 2016, Manchester was nearly 8 percent Hispanic, nearly 5 percent black and more than 4 percent Asian. In Lewiston, the second largest city in Maine, Somalis are well-established.

And oh how well that’s worked out for Maine so far.  Except when Somali kids are attacking park goers or more federal money being pumped in for food.  Or how about the fact that these Somali communities are known hotbeds for terrorist recruitment.  Oh the wonderful benefits of diversification!

She said in an interview later that the lack of certain basic services also made settling in places like New Hampshire difficult for minorities. These include hair salons that cater to African-American women, she said, as well as restaurants and supermarkets that offer ethnic foods and stores that sell traditional clothing.

Shame on New Hampshire for not having more salons specific to African-American women.  Who cares if they would go out of business before New Hampshire was enriched for lack of African-American clientele.   The government can just give free handouts to the businesses to keep them running.  Duh!

Manufactured hysteria

It shouldn’t really come as a surprise at this point, but much of the hysteria surrounding separating children from their parents is total BS. Again, this was an Obama-era policy and you’ll recall never hearing ANYTHING about it in the news when he was in office. Yet when President Trump takes charge it’s spun about and passed around as if it’s some kind of policy he enacted. Again, notice how quickly the left moves from issue to issue. They do not actually care about the people involved. They are no longer complaining about the children. Just like they’re no longer complaining about Supreme Court nominations or guns until the next news cycle when the hysteria is drummed up again.

This excellent article from conservativereview.com highlights much of this manufactured hysteria with regards to separation of children at border crossings:

The media has lied to us from day one. To begin with, 80 percent of the children who have crossed over since 2014 are not with parents but are unaccompanied. Only 20 percent come with parents. Either way, almost all of them have been resettled with illegal in-laws or aunts and uncles as well as parents who successfully evaded the border patrol over the years and have settled in the country illegally. This phenomenon violates the whole purpose of the unaccompanied child law, which was to combat human smuggling, not complete that conspiracy of smuggling by delivering the children into the hands of other illegal aliens.

In other words, the illegals are self-separating from their kids either by sending them here first and smuggling them to illegal relatives in America, or by abandoning their kids in Central America and coming here first, sending money back, and then paying coyotes to bring them here over time.

In the case of the family units coming together, their optimal goal is to evade the border patrol or sometimes surrender themselves and get paroled into the country. But now that Trump is clamping down on the parents, they choose the next best outcome, which is to at least let their kids stay here with other illegal relatives.

These judges are the biggest enablers of the drug cartels and “opioid” crisis

Now we are going to shoulder the burden of schooling these kids. And what happens when they get older? We need not speculate. There’s a reason why Long Island and Maryland have had problems with gangs in schools since 2014. Several hundred thousand of these “children” have been placed in our communities, by no fault of the American taxpayer, and we are forced to pay for the noose to hang ourselves with. The drug cartels got the proceeds from the smuggling, used the UACs as drug mules, and in recent years have used these families as diversions while they bring in the drugs, gangs, and Middle Easterners.

As Judge Andrew Hanen said of this phenomenon in 2013, it “successfully complet[ed] the mission of the criminal conspiracy” of drug smugglers to smuggle people over the border on behalf of parents “at significant expense” to taxpayers.

Earlier this week, the Washington Examiner quoted from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan observing that the cartels “use families and children to tie up Border Patrol resources while they bring narcotics through an adjacent point of the border.” This is exactly why the drug crisis spiraled out of control beginning with the border surge in 2014. It echoes similar comments made to me by Brandon Judd, the president of the Border Patrol Council, on how the Central Americans serve as the forward guard for drug smuggling.

In 2007, 5,171 people claimed credible fear in order to get asylum. In 2016, it was 91,786. That is your drug crisis right there. And the irony is that, over the same time, violence in Central America dropped by 30 percent, which shows that this is all a fraud being perpetrated on Americans on our dime. Oh, and 73 percent of the migrants in fiscal year 2017 were male , which doesn’t exactly reflect a reality of fleeing from violence. Sounds similar to what’s going on in Europe, huh?

So many of these problems could be solved if a BIG, beautiful wall were constructed. It’s no wonder there is so much push back from traitorous Congress members. The gang violence, drugs, and human trafficking would plummet and vindicate everything President Trump has said.
